Nick & Melanie Crapo

November 11, 2023 | Canton, MI

Nick and I have been married for 10 years, and it feels like adoption has been written into our story from the start. Nick has four younger cousins who are adopted, and I even remember Nick sharing pictures of his cousins on our first date. Adoption naturally became a topic of conversation for us over the years, and we both have a heart for sharing our love with a child. After I faced a rare autoimmune disease, adopting also became our primary option for having children, since pregnancy would be risky for my health. We are so grateful that I had a full recovery, and we feel blessed that we are now able to grow our family in this way.
